Rotary donates $10,680 to End Polio Now
PRINCETON — Princeton Rotary raised $3,560 with the Gates Foundation matching these dollars two-for-one, for a total of $10,680 to benefit the Rotary International End Polio Now campaign at its Princeton Rotary Foundation dinner on Oct. 22.
Rotary International’s End Polio Now efforts have led to a polio-free India. The last case of polio recorded there was in Janurary 2011. In 1988, there were 125 polio-endemic countries and 71 polio-free contries. Today, there are only 3 polio-endemic countries and 193 polio-free countries.
Every 60 cents given to End Polio Now pays for one child’s vaccination. The $10,680 raised by Princeton Rotary and the Gates Foundation will pay for 17,800 polio vaccines.
